Our Complete Services

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray Foam Insulation is the best form of insulation because it promotes structural stability, high R-value, and sound proofing. At Progressive Energy, our goal is to help you save money, knowing that the insulation you choose should give you a warm home and a lasting solution.

Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose Insulation is the most conservation-minded insulation option on the market. It is environmentally friendly, made up of 80% recycled material. Cellulose is a great product for residential or commercial projects and is also a great solution for soundproofing. If you're looking for insulation work that's effective but less expensive, talk to us about cellulose insulation.

Fiberglass Insulation

Fiberglass insulation is the most commonly found insulation material in Minnesota homes. Fiberglass consists of tiny fibers of glass that trap hot air. It can be either blown-in or installed as batts and is used in attics and exterior walls. If you think fiberglass insulation could be the right solution for you, let us know.

Wall Insulation

Moved into a new home with insufficient insulation in your walls? You can do something about that. Our team at Progressive Energy Insulation can come in and evaluate your home's wall insulation and help you re-insulate your walls to an R value that will help you stay warm and save money.

Attic Insulation

Most energy in your home is lost through your attic space. Insufficient attic insulation can result in a variety of costly problems. Not only will you be forced to pay more in energy bills, but you may also risk costly structural damage. By addressing the leaks and lack of insulation in your attic, you can stay warm and save money.

Custom Insulation

Most people in Minnesota have either an ice house for the winter or a camper for summertime getaways. A spray-foamed ice house makes long days on the lake feel cozy and comfortable. At Progressive Energy, we can insulate your ice house or recreational vehicles so you can enjoy your seasons to the max.

Blower Door Test

Blower Door Tests give you the diagnostics you need for your home. We’ll come in, get set up, test, and be out of your way with as little inconvenience to you as possible. When we’re through, you’ll know exactly where any problem areas are - and can even advise on how to address them!

Weatherization & Energy Efficiency

Lack of Insulation in your walls, windows, doors, floors and ceilings can contribute to your HVAC system working in overdrive. Air Sealing and Insulation is the best way to increase energy efficiency and savings.

Energy Insulation Rebates

Making your home more energy-efficient is good for everyone! Not only will you save money on energy bills, but you can receive energy rebates! We're a Preferred Contractor with Xcel Energy & Centerpoint Energy.

Insulation Suck Out

Need insulation removed? We can perform insulation suck outs from attics with fire damage, for mold mediation, and simply to take out old, deteriorating insulation. When we're done, your attic will be ready for the full weatherization and insulation process that will make your home energy efficient.

Residential Insulation

Insulation works by stopping the movement of air between the outside and inside of your home. By investing in home insulation, first by closing off any area that allows air to pass and then by insulating the space to keep your thermal boundary in place, you can save money on energy bills while you also stay more comfortable in your home.

Commercial Insulation

At Progressive Energy, we have years of experience working commercial insulation projects ranging from multi-housing residential units, retail establishments, corporate office spaces, and warehouses. If you have a commercial insulation project - we can help you make it energy efficient.
